I have got a frame you are talking about, I mean that 93 S-works carbon-titanium with a badge on the upper tube near the head which says that the frame is a limited final edition of Ned Overden, No. 2 of 60. No. 1 owns Ned Overend. The frame is never used, was hanging on the wall. Call me if you are interested in at +48600957001 or just e-mail at pidzey@o2.pl

New pics of my '95 Klein Adept. 8)

Made in Feb 1995 when there were not supposed to be Adepts available anymore. According to Carsten, this is one of the last Adepts built. Additionally it has a Coral Reef linear fade paintjob making this one a rare beast indeed. Of course, I'm using it as my daily "race-to-work" bike! :wink:
It has full original Deore XT M737. Replaced the original 90mm MC1 with a 150mm one. Don't know if this should have a Vetta TT or Flite but I replaced the Avocet 02 which came in it with a Flite Transalp.
Also using modern SPDs and tires. I have NOS Shimano M323 pedals for it so I might change them sometime in the future.

I do have a complete XTR M900 part spec (BB, hubs+QRs & seatpost) for her, but I decided to use the more bling-bling parts at least for now. I also have a rigid Direct Drive fork for her and I'm thinking should I use it instead of the FSX or not. The FSX doesn't hold the air for ages but it does look nice :D

Well, the actual Ultimate is almost ready (check out the page 1 on this thread) but I like this CrMo lugged one too...

I intend to keep the 90mm MC1 too. I changed it because the toptube on this 19" frame is only ~565mm and it was too cramped for me with the 90mm stem.
